Horizon, paper collage, 2022
Lately, I’ve really been missing the surreal/pop art style collages I used to make. So, I spent time yesterday working on a few really fun compositions that I hope to share soon. I love working with strange objects, vibrant colors, and quirky landscapes, but it’s certainly not what I would describe as “soothing” or “relaxing,” as my collage practice often is.
To the contrary. After working with a lot of big, bold images, I often feel the need to retreat and inhabit more minimal–and decidedly more tranquil–spaces. ( I also find this same logic applies to my poetry.) So, after I finished working on yesterday’s big, bright, fun compositions, I decided to rebalance by making a handful of minimal landscapes.
This little collection, which I’ll add to periodically, as it’s a routine part of my collage practice, is very no-frills. It’s also very peaceful. I hope you enjoy.
Prints for all of the artwork above are available in my Etsy shop.
Also, I’ve reorganized my Collage page. It is now much tidier and, I think, more accurately represents my work, past and present. Feel free to visit, if you’re interested.
